TFAH Publishes Issue Brief on Alcohol, Drug, and Suicide Crises
This week, the Trust for America’s Health (TFAH) published an updated issue brief detailing how public health and education sectors can work together to address the nationwide alcohol, drug, and suicide crises. The brief builds upon the existing Pain in the Nation report released last year which projected deaths from drugs, alcohols, and suicides could account for 1.6 million fatalities over the coming decade.
This most recent issue brief explores partnership opportunities between public health practitioners and educators and school administrators to engage broader stakeholders, improve school climate, screen students for risk factors, increase access to health professionals in school settings, and foster a culture of well-being. The latest issue brief is available here.
